After serving as a former state and federal prosecutor, Bobby O’Neill was appointed United States Attorney for the Middle District of Florida, twice, by Presidents Bush and Obama. Bobby acquired extensive experience as a trial lawyer, investigator, crisis manager, and leader. He leveraged this depth of expertise in the private sector in his role as a former Managing Director for Freeh Group International Solutions (FGIS), LLC, a risk management firm founded by Louis Freeh, a former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

In each engagement that he chooses to accept, Bobby is dedicated to delivering exceptional services to individuals and companies in their time of crisis, based on his many years of expertise.

Bobby began his legal career as an Assistant District Attorney in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office under the legendary Robert Morgenthau. Assigned to a Trial Bureau, his responsibilities included the prosecution of criminal cases from inception through appeal. He subsequently became an Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of Florida (Miami) where, in addition to prosecuting federal criminal cases, he also held several supervisory positions including Deputy Chief/Major Drug Traffickers Section and Chief/Financial Litigation Section.

After his tenure in this role, Bobby served as a trial attorney in the New York City law firm of Kramer, Dillof, Tessel, Duffy & Moore. In this role, he primarily represented plaintiffs as trial counsel in the courts of the State of New York, frequently in cases involving medical malpractice claims. Upon leaving the law firm, Bobby returned to public service as an Associate Independent Counsel in the Office of Independent Counsel in Washington, D.C., where his primary responsibility was as trial counsel in a case involving allegations of public corruption.

After conclusion of the trial, Bobby accepted a position as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Middle District of Florida (Tampa) where he was first assigned to the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) and then to the Economic Crimes Section. He also held several supervisory positions, including Chief, Special Prosecutions/Public Corruption Section; Anti-Terrorism Coordinator; Chief, Criminal Division; and First Assistant United States Attorney. Bobby was also selected for two separate assignments outside the Middle District, including as an Associate Independent Counsel in a separate Office of Independent Counsel where he was assigned as trial counsel in a case involving allegations of public corruption; he was also designated as head of the San Francisco, California, office. Additionally, he was assigned to the role of Deputy Chief in Charge of Litigation of the Narcotic and Dangerous Drug Section at the United States Department of Justice in Washington, D.C.

Bobby also founded O’Neill Law Group, LLC, a unique firm that bases its practice upon a working relationship with a cadre of former federal agents and other law enforcement professionals. Utilizing a team approach, the O’Neill Law Group seeks to bring innovative solutions to address the needs of clients.
